Will be heading over shortly to make remarks at The National Prayer Breakfast in Washington. Great religious and political leaders, and many friends, including T.V. producer Mark Burnett of our wonderful 14 season Apprentice triumph, will be there. Looking forward to seeing all!
Put faith in God–
Your life will change,
Though at the start
You might feel strange.
To Be a Star
To be a star,
Seek Jesus’ face
And you will light
The human race.
Signs and Wonders
And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the LORD, God made him to prosper.
–2 Chronicles 26:5
Sanctify yourselves: for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.
Jesus knew what they were thinking and said: “You surely don’t have much faith! Why are you talking about not having any bread? Don’t you understand? Have you forgotten about the five thousand people and all those baskets of leftovers from just five loaves of bread? And what about the four thousand people and all those baskets of leftovers from only seven loaves of bread?”

FIRST JOHN CHAPTER FOUR
1 Dear friends, do not believe each spirit, but
Inspect the spirits to determine whether
They are from God, because a multitude
Of pseudo-prophets permeate the world.
2 This is the way that you can recognize
God’s Spirit: Every spirit that admits
That Jesus Christ has come in flesh is from
The Lord, 3 but every spirit that does not
Acknowledge Jesus Christ is not from God.
This is the spirit of the Antichrist,
Which you have heard will come and even now
Is in the world already. 4 You, my dear
Children, are from the Lord and have subdued
Them, for the one in you is greater than
The one who’s in the world. 5 They’re from the world
And therefore speak from the perspective of
The world, a world that listens to them. 6 We
Are from the Lord; whoever knows the Lord
Listens to us; but he who’s not from God
Won’t hear us. This is how we know the Spirit
Of truth and spirit of deceit. 7 Dear friends,
Let us love one another, for love comes
From the Lord. Everyone who loves has been
Born of the Lord and knows the Lord. 8 The one
Who does not love does not know God, for God
Is love. 9 This is how God revealed his love
To us: He sent his one and only Son
Into the world so we might live through him.
10 This then is love: not that we loved the Lord,
But that he loved us and sent us his Son,
A sacrifice atoning for our sins.
11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we too ought
To love each other. 12 No one ever has
Seen God; but if we love each other, God
Lives in us and his love is made complete
In us. 13 We know we live in him and he
In us, because he’s given us his Spirit.
14 We’ve seen and testify the Father’s sent
His Son to be the Savior of the world.
15 If someone recognizes Jesus is
The Son of God, God lives in him and he
In God, 16 and so we know and count on love
That God has for us. God is love. He who
Lives in love lives in God, and God in him.
17 In this way, love is made complete among
Us so we will have confidence upon
The day of judgment, for in this world we’re
Like him. 18 There is no fear in love, and yet
Perfect love drives out fear, for it concerns
Punishment. He who fears is not perfected
In love. 19 We love because he first loved us.
20 If anyone says, “I love God,” yet hates
His brother, he’s a liar. For a man
Who does not love his brother, whom he’s seen,
Cannot love God, whom he has never seen,
21 And he has given us this law: That you
Who love the Lord must love your brother too.
